    Recommendations for Summer Trips

    I'm planning to do a couple weekend bike/camping trips this summer. I'm from Chapel Hill and have biked all around the Triangle. I've also biked:
    Warrior Creek (some of my favorite trails in the country)
    Pisgah - Squirrel Gap / Turkey Pen (loved it), Farlow Gap (bit too technical for my ability), Little M, Bent Creek
    Dupont State Forest (love that place)
    Dark Mountain / OVT
    Rocky Knob
    Danville, VA
    Big Creek, GA

    I'd like to try something new that's within a 4 hour drive from Chapel Hill. I'm thinking about hitting up Beech and then Warrior Creek on the way back. I'm also thinking about Kitsuma although that trail doesn't seem too long. My favorite trails are ones with good flow, scenery, in the back country a bit, but also enjoy moderate technical (some drops and jumps). I'll be looking to camp too w/ a tent so someplace close to a campground with a shower would be a bonus.

    Any recommendations for someplace I haven't been?

    Have you checked the trails at Moore Springs Campground at Hanging Rock State Park. I forgot to mention those trails on the TMTB thread (jager on there). Not far from CH either.

    Little bit further, but Tsali is good flow and not technical.
    Campground is true comfort camping. $15 a night and bathrooms with flush toilets and warm showers. You ride out from your campsite and there is even a bike wash at the right & left loop trail head. You will also need to pay $2 a day to use the trails.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.
